Under the magnifying glass

Ever heard that people are watching closely when they know you are a Christian? That’s as true as it could be here at the amusement park where our team serves.

It feels good to be loved

It's been a busy, hectic time. Here in “the cave”—our underground apartment complex— we have added 15 GoTokyo high school-age interns.

God with us

My teammates and I worked for a week with a church planter at a PowerPlant sports camp—a ministry designed to engage students in church planting and evangelism.

Not just one type

It's a blessing to see two churches in the same town reaching two drastically different groups of people.

Called to obey, not succeed

I remained in my seat, sulking in a sense of disbelief. Was this really happening to me? It was the day when Amanda, an intern I am serving with, and I were to walk onto the Japanese Technological Hosei University campus.

This summer, I am serving at a place called “Hope.” Actually, the clinic is called Nireekshana, but I asked a woman who worked there what it meant.

A Time to Dance

 The first night of my two-month stay here in Venezuela, I was introduced to an unconventional mode of evangelism that is effectively reaching Venezuelan youth—a breakdancing team called Yeshua.

Different way of thinking

Colorado has a completely different atmosphere than Texas—and I’m not just talking about the cooler weather. 

To all the world—in Fort Worth

CampbellShedding my shoes at the door I enter the small, simple room greeted by a wide, toothy grin. “Welcome,” says the elderly Iraqi man, proudly using one of about 10 English words now in his vocabulary.
